Assistant Director Interview

Assistant Director

I applied online and the process took 2 months - interviewed at Drexel University.

Interview Details – Submitted resume/cover letter online, called in for in-person interview with team and a few weeks later, an in-person interview with the rest of the department. Less than a week after the second interview, I was offered the position.
HR department was extremely friendly and helpful throughout the entire process.
From applying for job online to receiving offer, it was about two months.

Interview Question – Mainly questions about why I'd like to work there and questions regarding my most recent position experience. A few fun and out-of-the-box questions, which weren't super difficult, but involved thinking creatively (something required in the position every day anyway)
Not the typical "what's your biggest weakness" sort of thing
  Answer Question

Negotiation Details – Not too much of a change from initial offer, but friendly about it (no hardball/jerk stuff going on)
